General description

Dispersive SPE (dSPE), often referred to as the "QuEChERS" method (Quick, Easy, Cheap, Effective, Rugged, and Safe), is modern sample prep technique that is becoming increasingly popular in the area of multi-residue pesticide analysis in food and agricultural products.

Using the QuEChERS method, food/agricultural samples are first extracted with an aqueous miscible solvent (e.g., acetonitrile) in the presence of high amounts of salts (e.g., sodium chloride and magnesium sulfate) and/or buffering agents (e.g. citrate) to induce liquid phase separation and stabilize acid and base labile pesticides, respectively. Upon shaking and centrifugation, an aliquot of the organic phase is subjected to further cleanup using SPE. Unlike traditional methods using SPE tubes, in dispersive SPE, cleanup is facilitated by mixing bulk amounts of SPE (e.g., Supelclean PSA, ENVI-Carb, and/or Discovery DSC-18) with the extract. After sample cleanup, the mixture is centrifuged and the resulting supernatant can either be analyzed directly or can be subjected to minor further treatment before analysis.

Supelco carries a line of vials and centrifuge tubes containing pre-determined amounts of salts and SPE sorbents to support the most common method configurations used today.

Application

Supel QuE is used as the centrifuge tube for the quick, easy, cheap, effective, rugged, safe (QuEChERS) extraction and analysis of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in foods using gas chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry.

Glyphosate and related compounds are measured in oatmeal and infant cereal using ion-exchange polymer-based particles for HPLC and SPE. Low level detection was obtained.

Pesticide residue testing of turmeric and other (dried) spices is challenging due to their complex compositions and high matrix. An efficient SPE clean-up can be achieved by a new Dual-layer cartridge.

The odor and pungency of ginger is due to the presence of terpenes, gingerols and shogaols. These compounds contribute to the highly complex matrix of ginger, which subsequently presents a challenge in low level analyses of contaminants. A novel 2-layer SPE cartridge efficiently reduces background for pesticide determination.

Potency testing in marijuana-infused edibles is an important problem that analytical labs are facing due to the complexity of the involved matrices. Concentration of active ingredients in these edibles can range from a few parts per million to 3.5 parts per thousand. This application demonstrates the extraction and HPLC-UV analysis of the active compounds.

Paprika is a spice made from dried sweet peppers, and is used for flavor and color in many types of cuisine. Contamination with polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) can occur when pepper plants are exposed to these pollutants in the environment and/or during the drying process.

Rapid potency testing of marijuana-infused edibles using LC/MS on a biphenyl stationary phase detected eleven cannabinoids.
